Mathematics Challenge 24 Tournament winnersThe Office of Student Learning, Mathematics hosted its 17th Annual Prince William County Mathematics Challenge 24 Tournament recently at Beville Middle School. One-hundred-sixty-eight students from 29 different elementary and middle schools participated in this exciting tournament. The students earned a right to compete by winning grade level competitions at their individual schools.

The Prince William County Public Schools Mathematics Challenge 24 uses the innovative 24© Game to make mathematics more appealing, accessible, and, most of all, fun. Students not only practice mathematics computation in the areas of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, exponents, and algebra, they become adept at mental math, communicating mathematically, validating their thinking, and recognizing multiple ways to solve problems.
